Vintage Scottish Pin by Mizpah
The Mizpah signature which appears on the back of this great brooch was a signature used by the Ward Brothers who had originally began business during the 19th century. Originating in Scotland they eventually moved their business to Birmingham and were in business for many years. A decade ago the company was bought out by Miracle.
This lovely brooch is most likely to be a more recent piece. It is a silvertone circle of engraved thistles with a large fully faceted prong set centre stone of amber coloured crystal. There is a firm C shaped pin to the back.
